I've been wanting one for a long-ass time. Huzzah!

Just revealed on the live FB feed. I'm at work so I can't hear what he's saying, but...

LOL The F-hole looks cool, but I slightly prefer the look without it. :ninja:

First build brainstorm:

Trans Aqua (not burst)
Plain Maple top...maybe quilted maple or burled poplar.
Matching back
Trans White BBE front and back
Dark-as-pitch trans black on mahogany
Chrome pickups
Ivory rings and nut
Chrome hardware
BEM, RE or ZEB fretboard with abalone offset dot inlays (not staggered, no K)
Piezo
CT headstock

Probably not possible, but trans white BBE on the INSIDE of the F-hole.

No snark from me today!

This is a great, natural addition to the lineup. I'd consider this if I found myself wanting a smaller semi-hollow with a piezo option.

Awesome! I'd love it even more with two holes. I'm really liking it as is though.

Apparently it's only available in 24-fret.

I like it a lot, I've thought about a chambered CT before and this makes it more interesting. Now if they did a semi hollow CS, that'd really catch my attention.

Did he say anything about it being set-through? The neck tenon cutout looks like it goes all the way under the bridge pickup, but that could very well just be chambering.

edit: nevermind...I'm sure it's just chambering:

I can see why. They hardly sell any 22-fret CTs, it seems. Glancing at Facebook, it seems like it's at least 5:1.

One might argue that the type of person who wants the semi-hollow also likely wants 22...but if it's "24-only", they've made their bed and will have to lie in it...for now, anyway. ;0

That's the only downside I see. With the 25in scale. The high frets can get crampy.
I agree a player looking for hollow body tone wants the tone of a neck pickup in the traditional 22fret position.
That said I want one ! Gotta think hard about the scale and lack of 22 fret version.

Fortunately, I've already got my 22-fret 25" set-neck in my CS6, so I've got those bases covered!
